“But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.” ~ James 1:22
Being merely a hearer and not a doer of the word is like ordering the P90X Ultimate Workout Kit. You get the 12 workout DVDs, the chin-up bar, the resistance bands, and you even whip up some of the P90X Results & Recovery Post-workout drink. You get in your new workout clothes. You put in the DVD, plop down on the couch, watch the workout and then say, “That’s my workout!” Does that work? No, you actually have to work out.
Being doers of the word means actually living out what you say you believe. Being doers of the word means living like the gospel is actually true. Being doers of the word is putting faith into action.
Are you a doer or a poser?
